Captured. --Bill McDonald, who made his escape from the penitentiary a few days since, was re- captured last evening by Messrs. John Drake, Henry Franklin, and Frederick Gray, of the city watch. Bill was walking towards town on the Central Railroad, having left his place of concealment in the outskirts for the purpose of finding more comfortable quarters. He will be provided with them at once at the expense of the Commonwealth.
Dismissed. --The charge against Catharine Sullivan, for trespassing on Edwin Poindexter's premises, was dismissed by the Mayor yesterday morning, it appearing that Mr. Poindexter's object was more for the purpose of ejecting from his house a tenant than because of her interruption of the public peace. Henry Franklin was also dismissed from the charge of drunken and disorderly conduct, it appearing that this was his first offence, and he promising that it should be his last.
The Mayor will go into an investigation at the lower station-house this morning of certain charges which have been preferred against watchmen Fabius Hicks and Henry Franklin. Hicks is charged with receiving a reward of one thousand dollars for the arrest of a runaway from the Spotswood Hotel and refusing to turn over to his partnbeen suspended by the Mayor on account of certain representations which were made to him about the affair; but yesterday watchman Cousins informed his Honor that Franklin gave him the stolen articles the morning they were recovered, and requested him to return them to the owner, if it could be ascertained who it was. After repeatey were given up to her. This was the cause of the delay, and not from any lack of disposition to part with the goods taken from the thief. Upon learning these facts, the Mayor has determined to ascertain the facts in the case, so that no injustice may be done Franklin by dismissing him from the night watch without proper cause.
